iTero Intraoral Camera
Rather than simply telling you what is going on with your smile, we can show you thanks to our iTero intraoral camera. This small device fits comfortably into the mouth, and it allows our team to take high-resolution images of the teeth and gums. We’ll display these images on a monitor next to the treatment chair so we can go over problem areas and possible solutions, ensuring that you and our team are always on the same page.
A lot goes on in your mouth that can’t be seen by the naked eye! Below the gum line, issues like cavities, gum disease, and even cancer can potentially develop. But with digital X-rays, we can catch these issues and more before they can cause you major problems. Not only are digital X-rays much more detailed compared to traditional film ones, but they take just a fraction of the time to develop as well. Plus, they expose our patients (as well as our team) to 80-90% less radiation.
With a CBCT scanner, we’re able to create a highly detailed 3D map of your dental anatomy in less than five minutes. This kind of image shows both rows of teeth, the jaws, joints, and even the location of tiny facial nerves. Within minutes, it can help us establish an in-depth baseline when a patient comes to see us for the first time, and we can also use it to precisely plan for more complicated procedures like dental implant placement.
